Another recipe: cream of celery soup in a different way

I am still not able to put pictures on the blog, I don't know why. To entertain you, here is another recipe. If you don't like gorgonzola, try with another blue or just normal cheese. Trust me, it is good either way!

Ingredients:

25 g butter
3 stick of celery
1 onion
1 small potato
500 ml milk
500 ml vegetable or chicken broth
1 bay leaf
200 g gorgonzola
salt
pepper

Preparation:

1. Chop the celery and the onion, cook it with the butter uncovered for 2-3 minutes, then covered for 4-5 minutes.
2. Add the diced potato, the milk, the broth and the bay leaf. Bring it to boil then cook it on slow for 30 minutes.
3. Take out the bay leaf and mix it in a blender. Bring it to boil one more time, then add salt and pepper. Add the half of the gorgonzola just before serving. Put the other half of the cheese on toasted, warm bread. Serve them together.

Buon appetito!
